Pentaborane Safety Bulletin

While once of great interest as a military-sponsored, high-energy liquid rocket propellant, pentaborane (B5H9) is a very dangerous chemical. This bulletin was issued on August 14, 1998 to potential recipients of pentaborane manufactured by Callery Chemical (a former division of MSA that was purchased by BASF Corporation in September 2003) as well as to waste management agencies, treatment/disposal facilities, and environmental consulting/services firms who may encounter pentaborane in a remedial response or waste management setting.
